What started nearly 10 years ago as a hyper local website for Geist Reservoir residents has entered an expansion phase in the Indianapolis metro area. Tom Britt, the founder of the TownePost Network of websites and hyper local newsletters, announced that the Fishers (atFishers.com) and Zionsville (atZionsville.com) Community Newsletters will be launching in 2013 to complement their existing atGeist.com, atCarmel.com, and atCenterGrove.com properties.
“As print, Internet, and video medias converge locally, we’re positioning ourselves to be a news and small business promotional conduit for the communities we serve,” Britt said. “Fishers and Zionsville round out our north side presence and give our advertising sponsors good penetration in these local markets.”
In February, approximately 14,000 Fishers residents will begin receiving the Fishers Community Newsletter, published by Laurie and Matt Quinn, in their mailboxes. A Fishers family of four living near Hamilton Southeastern High School, the Quinns recently licensed the area from the TownePost Network launching them into a profitable publishing business. Zionsville will be launching in April, serving the Zionsville area on Indianapolis’s northwest side.
This expansion comes on the heals of the announcement that the Carmel Community Newsletter licensing rights have been sold to former Indianapolis radio icons John and Ann Craig-Cinnamon.
“We have the highest advertiser retention rate in any media for one simple reason: It works,” added Britt. “People want to support locally-owned businesses. We facilitate positive content that helps create that sense of community that every resident wants.”
Future plans call for expansion on the west side and downtown Indianapolis. For more information on licensing information, contact Tom Britt at 317-496-3599 or email Tom@atGeist.com.
